KISS ME…

AND FORGET I CALLED.

BIG MISTAKE.

YOU & YOUR NOODLES.

ME & MY CLUB FOOT.

TWO IDIOTS.

WHAT WERE WE THINKING?

THINKING!

SORRY FOR HYPERBOLE.

MUST WE CRY?

NO, I SAY.

GRIN & BEAR IT.

AS THE GREAT GENERATION

TAUGHT US INDULGED–

THANKS–

PEEK ON CHEEK

WILL DO–

COCKA–DOODLE DOO–

PRIMITIVE SINK HOLE BIRDS

GO AHEAD…

BIG SHOT,

SPEAK YOUR MIND

AND PAY

WITH A SLAP

OF COLD TOWEL

A SACK OF MARBLES

SEWN INSIDE

BREAKING YOUR NOSE

CHIPPING YOUR IVORIES

SPLATTERING BLOOD

ON BARGAIN FURNITURE

CREATING CHAOS

WHERE CALM

ONCE LAY

LIKE A GIANT FOOTPRINT

OF A DINOSAUR FORGOTTEN.

FATAL FOOTPRINT

ALWAYS THE STRANGER

WITH A CAREFUL WAY

SLIGHTLY DRUNK PERHAPS

ON RITUALS RE-LEARNED

WITH THOUGHT & CONCERN

TIPSY KINDNESS

IN A WORLD

THROWN FORWARD

LIKE A BULL

BEFORE THE BANDERA ROJA:

EASY IN ANGER

THESE OUTSIDERS SLIDE

SIDEWAYS LIKE SNAKES

AND AWAKEN IN THE FOLK

A FEAR OF VIPER BITE

FATAL TO THE ORGANS

NO HOPE, NO LIGHT

THESE STRANGERS–WE CRY!

WHO ARE THEY?

DEATH & DARKNESS

COMES THE ANSWER.

VIPER ON ALERT

THE WAY

OH, I KNEW YOU’D COME

BACK TO THE HOUSE

POPULATED WITH SUNSHINE

WHERE YOUR THOUGHTS

DWELL ON ME & THEE:

US, TOGETHER, AT LAST.

BUT BAD WEATHER

KEPT Y OU ASHORE

FEARFUL OF ISLAND TRAVEL

SO I LIT THE PYRE

OF DRIED SUMMER WOOD

KNOWING THE SMOKE

SMUDGING THE HORIZON

WOULD SHOW YOU THE WAY HOME.

TOGETHER, AT LAST

CONSIDER THE PACKAGE

BUT GO FURTHER

AS FLIMSY ADS

INTO THE CONTENTS

AS MEAL

TO BE SLOWLY EATEN

TASTE BUDS ALERT

TO SPECIOUS HERBS

AND EASY SHORTCUTS

AND LISTEN TO THE BODY

ITS REFLECTIVE POWERS

OF DIGESTION

UNDER A FAIR SKY

IN A COOL WIND

AND DAPPLED LIGHT

UNDE AN ELM

OVERLOOKING THE VALLEY

AND ITS SNAKING RIVER.

THIS DAY…

THE RAIN CAME

FULLY, COMPLETELY

THE ARROYO FILLED

THE GRASS BROWN

FROM SUMMER’S HEAT

SOFTENED TO GREEN

AND ACROSS THE CITY

EVERYONE TOOK A BREATH

FROM THE OVEN AIR

NOW CHILLED & SMOKING

AND BODIES

RELAXED AT LAST

INTO THE PROMISE

OF THE GIFT OF FALL–

RELAX!!

TO REHEARSE–

THE CHAIRS

WE SAT THEM

IN A ROW

BUT NOT SATISFIED

ADJUSTED AN S-CURVE

STILL LATER,

A CIRCLE

THEN A BOX

AND A V

WITH AN X

CAUSING WAITING CLIENTS

INCREDIBLE AGITATION

ENDING WITH ANGRY SHOUTS

AND WHOOFS OF TEARS–

JUST LET US SIT DOWN

ANYHOW–ANY WHO…

WE JUST WANT TO TELL

OUR PITIABLE STORIES:

SITTING, DOCTOR, NOT STANDING!

TRUST ME, I’M A DOCTOR!
